He is totally obsessed with Toy Story at the moment so Aaron had made up a cute invitation to send out to his cousins and Grandma and Grandpa.
A lot of his presents were also related to do with Toy Story which he was very excited about.
When Jay was Kobe's age he was obsessed with the TV show 'Blues Clues'. Kobe has recently discovered it as they have the DVD at the child care at the gym and every day he asks the ladies to put it on for him. He is so excited to now have his own Blues Clues DVD for home.
He then spent the morning watching his new DVDs and playing with his new toys (and eating chocolate, just because he could because it was his birthday - hence the mess around his face).
We then met all the cousins and Uncle and Aunties at Treasure Island (except Chrish). The others hadn't been there before, and it was only our second time so everyone was very excited and had a great time.
We then came back to our house for a game, food, cake and more present opening.
Aaron is usually the one who makes the boys cakes and is great at it, but I decided to give him a break this year and made it myself. We were going to continue with the Toy Story theme and have a Toy Story cake which Kobe was excited about, but just as I was cooking it Kobe tells me he wanted a Wiggles or Barbie cake instead! I kept saying 'no we are having a Toy Story cake!' and he would look at me and say 'no this one!' and would do the Wiggles fingers at me.
I then quickly decided to make a Big Red Car cake instead and this was the result. Kobe was SO happy with it and couldn't wait to eat it.
He hardly ate anything for lunch but had two huge pieces of cake.
Now if we can just get him to say that he is 'three'. Every time someone asks how old he was going to be, or how old he is today he says with a smile 'two!'.
